The Edinburgh Conspiracy
David Wyllie. The Edinburgh Conspiracy is a political thriller set in the near future. Scotland is independent and Edinburgh has been chosen as the site of a major international congress of heads of state. It will finalize a settlement of the Israel–Palestine dispute. A group of Palestinians reject the settlement and conspire to use a series of escalating terrorist incidents to cause the congress to fail. Only a young Scots-American graduate student and his Edinburgh friends stand between the conspirators and success.
